Lemming Bowl Radstadt skateable!

Thanks for the patience everyone, the lemming bowl is finally skateable again. Casting the big statue took as longer then expected, bad wheater and other things delayed setting up. But now there's no excuse anymore, and with the latest rain the pool should also be pretty clean - have fun :)

lemming setup in progress

Mac and Christian came over again to help setting up the Lemming. These two folks and the incredible Schorsch (operating the crane) made it quite simple and we managed to get the whole statue out of the mould in about 5 hours!

Now it's a couple of more details that need to be done to finish the site, but this was definately a crucial day for the whole project!

If the weather stays dry we can work on the back of the statue tomorrow to make it more solid, but it looks already quite massive ;)

the base is done …

Today I finished the base for the statue, another 10tons of gravel, mixed with cement. That should be solid enough to carry the lemming ;)

Works will continue next week, we'll get the big crane again and start lifting the lemming out of the mould … stay tuned!

setting up the big I-beams

Two days of work to set up the base and I-beams for the big statue - thanks to Toni and Sigi who did an amazing job!

So lifting both 7m steel beams and putting them in place was one thing, to do all the shuttering and fix it another.

And I also managed to finish the missing bank, the first time I had to do something like this on my own, but it turned out quite ok …

the new bank - in progress

Did the shuttering for the missing bank today … quite a good workout, and I used a lot of left steel …

The big I-Beams arrived today as well, so fingers crossed we can continue tomorrow with digging and more shuttering!

waiting for more concrete

Most of the structure for the statue is done, next step is to set up two massive, steel I-Beams. And we'll also build another small bank, hopefully all that should happen this week …

Lemming Sections

The first slice of lemming is done! Yesterday we fixed all sidewalls to out wooden structure, and moved the lower bit – worked. So today we'll try to finish the other sections as well, and then all we need is a big crane ;)
